THERE'S nothing worse when you've spent hours painting than spotting an uneven line.

But one DIY fanatic has come up with a quick and easy way to get immaculately straight lines every time.


Shayna took to TikTok to share her hack, as she explained: "This is the easiest way to get perfectly clean lines every single time."

She demonstrated the hack with caulk, but was quick to add that it would work just as well when painting.

"Get two pieces of painter’s tape, one for the wall and one for the ledge, and run a bead of caulk down the middle," she said.

"You can use your finger or a baby wipe to wipe off the excess and then when you peel the tape back, you get the most perfect crisp and clean lines every single time.

"What do you think?"

Viewers were quick to praise Shayna for the hack, with one writing: "It’s like you crawled into my brain and heard what I’ve been thinking about.

Others criticised the "lip" that was left on the caulk, with one writing: "Nope. as a painter the lip left by the caulking is unacceptable."

"No that edge does not look good," another person added. "Also if you don’t paint the caulk it will discolour."
